  I have not tried to get it running on Redhat, but I have successfully gotten it running on FC1 and FC3 with success.  I had to be very dilligent about following the instructions in the INSTALL file.  I have also it helps in certain cases to know a little about kernel upgrading and patching.  Any errors you are getting?  Are you sure IPTables isn't blocking any network traffic?

My setup is as here: http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/drbd/users/8260

Basically two machines on a private LAN, no firewall rules (IPTABLES default policy "accept"), using redhat kernel.

I have not patched my kernel, and I have compiled drbd (0.7.10) as a kernel module, against the kernel source. I have followed the instructions in the INSTALL file as closely as possible; everything worked as expected as far as configuring/compiling/installing until I came to running drbdadm, then I got the kernel errors I listed in the above post.

    Hi everyone,

    Has anybody succeeded in making drbd work on redhat 9? If so, could you share a couple of details like kernel version, drbd version (ie. 0.7.10?) as I am stuck and don't want to do a full re-install for fedora or something (which, btw, I have not made drbd work on successfully yet either).

    Especially I am hoping there is someone out there who has drbd working on redhat 9 on a 2.4x version kernel...

    Many thanks,
